Lethbridge prairie rattlesnake conservation project : 2002/2003 progress report

Description

Lethbridge is at the western edge of prairie rattlesnake range in Canada. Continued expansion of the city has resulted in a substantial loss of suitable rattlesnake habitat and special efforts are necessary to maintain a sustainable population of rattlesnakes in Lethbridge. Recovery efforts focused on establishing a population of rattlesnakes in a newly-constructed artificial hibernaculum in Cottonwood Park. This report provides a summary of progress and results based on recommendations from 2001, and outlines current and future management and recovery strategies aimed at maintaining the Lethbridge prairie rattlesnake population.
